The Delta State Police Command says the Stay-at-home order by the state government has not been lifted or relaxed for the Easter celebrations.
The spokesperson of the command, Onome Onovwakpoyeya, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), disclosed this to NIGER DELTA TODAY Online on Saturday.
She said the command will continue to enforce the order in effort to curb the spread of the rampaging COVID-19 in the state.
She urged residents of the state to disregard reports that the lockdown had been relaxed to enable Christians attend Easter Sunday celebration across the state.
This is coming amid reports that the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has granted approval for Easter Sunday service to Christians.
Responding to enquiry from this medium on the lockdown, Onovwakpoyeya said, “There is no relaxation of the lockdown. Our officers have been directed to continue to enforce the stay-at-home order.”
Also, the State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, had also denied the relaxation of the restriction to our reporter on Friday.
Aniagwu had told our correspondent that any such directive will be communicated to Deltans through his office or the office of Secretary to State Government (SSG), Mr Chiedu Ebie.
